This book makes important points about mitigating anxiety in young children - Kirkus Reviews
Absolutely super delightful It is the perfect message mistakes to learn at a very young age. Each elementary school class and library should have copies of this amazing book. Having taught elementary, and first grade especially for many years, this is exactly how these young children/students feel. They do think mistakes are bad, but it is very important that they learn mistakes are really the best tickets to their successful future. We learn best through our mistakes. I especially love the manner this book is presented in such a positive, caring and loving way. - ITEEA
